Reporter: NFL had Ray Rice video in April

The NFL is in major damage control with the commissioner and the league's credibility hanging in the balance.

The newest revelation – ESPN reporting that Ray Rice told NFL commissioner Roger Goodell back in June that he punched his now-wife. Which is in contradiction, to what Roger Goodell said this week.

This new revelation is in addition to an AP report saying the NFL received the video of Ray Rice assaulting his now-wife in an elevator back in April.

OutFront, Rob Maaddi, who is the AP reporter who broke the story.

    I thank you and CNN for airing the domestic violence video of Ray Price. I saw your interview with Mr. Price's friend last night. He said "if we love her" we will not show the video. Domestic violence has been allowed to flourish for the simple reason it has been hidden, it needs to be discussed. People need to know that love is not about hitting. It is an anger management issue that is the sole responsibility of the person who is hitting. In this video I see both people hitting each other so both people need to get counseling on appropriate ways of addressing their individual anger management issues. If they love each other they will run, not walk, to a counselor, learn tools to help them deal with their anger without physical violence. If they do not want to do the work, do not tell people they love each other when they want to hurt them because no one ever, ever thinks about or wants to hurt someone they truly love. When she landed on that railing she could have died, that is not and never will be seen by anyone being loved. Children strike out when they are frustrated or mad, mature adults do not. Domestic violence is about a lack of maturity and wanting power over someone, it is never about love. True love is about caring about the well being of another person, not about what you want, your image, or you, you, you. I hope Mr. and Mrs. Rice truly do love each other and learn tools to help them deal lovingly with each other when frustrations arise in their marriage. Thank you for having the courage to deal with this issue.
